Hapoel Galil Elyon (Hebrew: הפועל גליל עליון) is an Israeli basketball club. The team competes in the Israeli Basketball Premier League, the top tier of Israeli basketball. The team represents the north-east region of the country – the Upper Galilee, and the Israeli settlements in the Golan Heights.
In June 2008, the club rights in the Israeli Basketball Premier League transferred to Hapoel Gilboa (which had previously been merged with Hapoel Afula, which regained their independence) to form a new club, Hapoel Gilboa Galil, which represents the Gilboa and Lower Galilee regions. The team was re-established in 2009.
American-Israeli Brad Leaf played for 12 years for Hapoel Galil Elyon. He won the Israeli Basketball Premier League MVP award in 1989-90. In both 1989-90 and 1991-92 he was voted a member of the Israeli Basketball Premier League Quintet, an award given to the five best players of each season of the Israeli Basketball Premier League.
In 1992–93 the club, then coached by Pini Gershon – became the first club based outside Tel Aviv to win the Israeli Championship, ending Maccabi Tel Aviv's 23-year winning streak. They also won the State Cup twice, in 1988 and 1992.
Between 1990 and 2008, several of the Israel's most successful basketball players came through the club, including Nadav Henefeld, Oded Kattash, Doron Sheffer, Gur Shelef, Lior Eliyahu, and Sharon Sasson, earning the team the nickname "the Israeli basketball college".
Total titles: 3
